First of all, yes I know I posted quite recently but after a few days, other posts bring my older one down ( does that make sense? ) and no one else replies so anyways, I hope y'all don't mind! Anyways, from my last post, someone suggested sea sponge tampons and the Meluna shorty ( which both seem great for my very low cervix which is about a fingernail length in or 1cm, don't ask xD ) but they both seem to have to have very low capacity in order for them to fit. The Meluna could probably only last at most a couple hours on my heaviest day ( which sucks ) and sea sponge tampons would probably have to be trimmed really small ( am I right about that or is there some trick? ). Anyways, I was wondering if I could still use sea sponge tampons without having a small size and a teeny capacity like the Meluna Shorty ( I'm planning to buy the small or medium ). I know for one thing that my cervix is really this low ( read my other post pour favor ) so please don't suggest otherwise. And one more thing, I live in Canada so I have no idea which stores I can get a sea sponge tampon ( any particular art store? ) since when I check online, all I get are US websites ( with what I need but can't get ) and the Canadian websites that claim to have no sponges. I have no idea what and where to buy these sponges so if anyone could lend a hand, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, someone in my last post suggested I couldn't use any internal menstrual protection, is that true? I think that wraps up my questions and concerns for now. Thanks! I hope this will help anyone else in my place too.

Lol sorry. I got carried away when I read the link xD. Anyways, by clicking on the actual link, I'm wondering if it's generic. It looks like a great size but I haven't heard of it so I'll check it out and do some more research since I haven't heard of that brand nor know much about it ( duh ). Meh, that idea for the online buying from a friend could work but isn't that kinda weird xDD? But thinking about it, it could work. Thanks!

Edited to add: Well, it seems to be sized just like the Mini Meluna S ( 40mm x 40mm ). It seems to be decent silicone ( or whatever material they actually used ) and the capacity should be somewhat greater than the Meluna shorty S. I'm quite happy it has suction release holes too! So thanks for that helpful link! Anyways, on a completely unrelated side note, what do you think about the Meluna shorty M? It is a bit larger than the linked one but I wonder if it could work with my very low cervix.

I don't have any personal experience with any of the Shortys--I tried 2 Meluna Classics when I first got into cups and that was a SERIOUS mistake since my cervix is actually very high! But they may be great for you!

With such a low cervix, it might be dangly in addition. Have you checked?
Then I could imagine that the shorty M or L might be an option.

Just don't buy the diva. That is too much money for something you probably won't be able to get in.

It's not dangly. I want to try a diva cup so I know which shorty will work diameter wise. Although I think the large shorty is too long. What do you think?

The Shorty S and M are both narrow and I doubt that any of them is too wide for you. I really can't say if they will fit in length, though. I don't think you will learn anything from buying a diva. A cup that sticks out is uncomfortable.

Ok. I'll wait for an opportunity to buy the Meluna Shorty M since the small is not that much smaller and the large isn't really any smaller than the small Meluna ( which is probably too long ). Thanks for the advise.
